conandviv posted a topic in Shipping and RemovalsWe are due to arrive in Adelaide in August. We've had quotations for shipping from PSS and John Mason. Can anyone offer testimonials/recommendations of who they would go with based on your experiences. I have read lots of forum reviews on the subject, but can't find many recent ones for UK to Adelaide. (We plan to go with an independent like Letton Percival for insurance). Many thanks for your help... much appreciated! :-)
Does anyone know what the difference between the FIDI, which decriibes itself as the the largest global alliance of independent quality international removal companies; and IAM, which describes itself as the moving and forwarding industry's largest global trade association and a union comprised of the auditing, forwarding and shipping companies located in over 160 countries? Which is the membership which I should rely on when choosing a shipping company?
Advice needed PIO friends, We're off to Canberra in February to embark on our new adventure. Now in the process of getting quotes from shipping companies. So far we've been given 2 eye watering quotes from well known companies to pack up all our belongings, bearing in mind we live in a 'bijou' 2 bed flat, and ship them to Canberra. In fact the last shipping company seemed a tad confused when I said that their quote was a little on the pricey side. As we don't have much to ship (not taking large items like fridge, washing machine, dishwasher, etc.) we'll be sharing a container, yet the quotes coming in have been more than what our entire visa process cost! Waiting for a couple more quotes. In the meantime we're now facing the following dilemmas Do we sell everything and start again from scratch? Bite the bullet and go with a considerable amount less in savings? To save on storage costs in the UK do we ship everything over immediately & hope for the best? Anyone know if shipping companies are open to negotiation? Surely in the current economic climate they too are feeling the pinch! HELP, any advice is greatly appreciated :sad:
